We had a wonderful stay at the Hotel Villa Convento this past weekend. We stayed for 3 nights, and arrived in NO at 8 AM. Check in time is 2pm, but they held our bags for us and called when the room was ready around 10AM and let us check in.
The room was beautiful, we stayed in 401 and the balcony was not like the ones on the lower floor with wrought iron and street views, but gave us a private rooftop view of the city that included a small view of the bridge and river. There was slight water damage we could see on the ceiling, but no smell or other drawbacks, didn't bother us at all. The room was clean, larger than expected, cute and comfortable. The rooms come with towels, soap and linens but no shampoo so bring your own. Also, in our room the elevator was very loud. Didn't keep me from sleeping though.
There were sodas and snacks available for sale in the lobby. We had experiences with Warren, Barbara and Vince at the desk, and they couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating. From ghost stories, to cab calls, and personal favors, they were amazing.
We will definitely be back to the Hotel Villa Convento.
